The Indonesian team is difficult because it looks good

JAKARTA – Iraq U-23 will be the opponent of Indonesia U-23 in the third race for the U-23 Asian Cup 2024 at the Abdullah bin Khalifa Stadium, Thursday, May 2, 2024.

Iraq U-23 head coach Shenaishil has ambitions to win the competition and earn one last ticket to automatically qualify for the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris. However, he admits that Garuda Muda is a serious stumbling block.

“We didn’t come here to watch the Olympics. We never said we would reach the final.”

“We are happy with our current situation. We still have the opportunity to forget the match against Japan U-23 and advance to the Olympic Games.”

“We know that Indonesia U-23 is a very difficult team. They are in the top four because they performed well in the group stage, but we hope to play against Indonesia and win,” Shenaishil said.

Besides worrying about Garuda Muda’s power, Sheniashil was also experiencing internal problems. They can’t show up with a roster full of fitness issues.

“Now we have to work physically with the players. We have suffered several injuries and we have to replace the players,” Sheniashil said.

The match between Indonesia U-23 and Iraq U-23 is the celebration for the last ticket that automatically qualifies for the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris.

Meanwhile, the team that lost in the third race for the 2024 U-23 Asian Cup can still fight for one remaining ticket to France.

However, the fourth-place team will face an inter-confederation play-off against Guinea (the fourth tier of the 2023 U-23 Africa Cup) on May 9, 2024.
